The first day of school is the worst
You know your name is going to be called next on the attendance sheet when the teacher hesitates before saying it
When this happens, you just raise your hand and tell the teacher how to say it before they even get around to embarrassing you in front of the whole class
Substitute teachers are your worst nightmare
But after a while, you simply respond to whatever name they give you- they’re only with you for one class period anyway
Nicknames become your best friend
You always wonder how teachers get your name right on the first day of school but struggle with it for the rest of the year
When someone actually pronounces your name correctly, this is your reaction
And when someone mispronounces your name, your friends do this
Meeting new people is really hard because no one can ever remember your name correctly (if at all)
But hey, at least you’ll always a conversation starter! Embrace your weird, unique, complicated names, kiddos!
